Hi Sim Superusers,
Quick question. What are the possible waiting times an object can be in? In the atttached screenshot, i see the waiting time as some value, but i do not see, if it waiting for MU or resources or something else.
Please share your thoughts.
Solved! Go to Solution.
But why is it showing that Waiting for MUs is zero at the bottom? Doesnot make sense to me, as total waiting time has some value, and breakdown for the watiing time at the bottom has all zero.
This is not helping in finding the root cause.
MUs and Parts are same, from what i understand.
Station A16 is the second last station.
So it has to wait several cycles (during warm up)
until its fed with the first main part ( from A15).
By resetting the statistics after populating the model (warm up) you can eliminate
this kind of waiting statistic.
A16 has a lower cycle time ( is faster) as the predecessors stations and has to wait
for the next part provided by the slower predecessors.
Got you!!! Thats right, the object has to wait until first part.
Is there a way, i can eliminate the first part waiting time from stats, so that I can see the actual waiting times once line is stabilized?
